“Although Xbox 360 had a one year head start, we expect the Nintendo Wii to surpass the Xbox 360 installed base next month. The Wii’s installed base reached 9.5mn units, and it sold an average of 718k units in the past two months, while Xbox 360’s base of 10mn only sold an average of 234k units per month this year. Clearly, the Wii has been regaining momentum after months of shortages, and we expect the installed base to exceed 10mn units by next month.” – Deutsche Bank analyst Jeetil Patel
